Hurry, up Alex. I made french toast, we're going to be late and Dad will be mad if he has to drive us. Again.
I'm sick, can't you tell?
Honey, Alex isn't feeling well. I told her she didn't have to go to school today
You're not even dressed?
I told you I'm just sick.
Why wouldn't she?
You are so not sick. I can't believe Mom believed you.
"Oh I dunno, maybe because you don't have a sore throat and you're not puking. So unless you have Queen Mab plague..."
My sister Alex auditioned for Romeo and Juliet and will find out today what part she got. Normally she is up right away. Yet for some reason this morning she hasn't come out of her room. I don't know what's wrong. Turns out she is faking sick; and she has a favor to ask.
Hey... Wire Rims.
Turns out she's faking sick, because she is afraid she didn't get the part. Plus she's got a favor to ask. She is in love with a boy she is sure will get Romeo; her master plan, is to get the part of Juliet and then she will get her first kiss from none other than her crush. But she believes she failed the audition. Therefore she won't get the part. But who will?
It's me Owen. From, um, detention.
I just know she is't sick but I have more important things on my mind. Like, why are all the girls in my class matching up and why does Alex read books with one-word-titles about things I don't understand.
Now i'm stuck in detention with a boy. I have no clue what to say or do. I don't know if I like him or not or if he likes me.
Later at home I get a phone call. From none other than Wire Rims. He is asking me to be his partner for some science project.
I was already waiting in the back yard for him when he came. I tell him the plan and we're just sitting there, nothing special. We were talking science until out of the blue. He was in my face and just like that, smack! He KISSED ME!
